Politics Research Colloquium

This year the seminar takes place on Friday lunchtimes at 12:15, in Seminar Room A at Manor Road. Sandwiches will be available.

The aim of the Colloquium is to provide a forum where doctoral students, post-docs, visitors and faculty can present their work; where we can discuss shared theoretical and analytical issues; and where people with diverse theoretical approaches and commitments within Politics can come together. It also provides doctoral students with the opportunity to discuss shared theoretical and analytical issues within the broader Oxford community.

Speakers are free to present whatever part of their work would be helpful, but are encouraged to focus on those aspects which raise general analytical or theoretical issues and/or connect with a Politics audience outside of their immediate sub-field or specialization. The idea is to concentrate on work on progress rather than completed or published work.

The Colloquium is open to all graduate students in Politics and International Relations. Papers will mostly relate to Government, but the Colloquium seeks to draw in those working on the borders of Politics, especially with Sociology and Area Studies and to encourage a pluralist approach in terms of methods and forms of analysis.

We are always looking for suggested papers, and for volunteers to act as discussants in the next coming terms.
